HELD RAINBLOCK WET WEATHER GEAR REVIEW
Author: Boris Mihailovic Date Posted:28 January 2017
I have always been a wet-weather gear miser. Once every year I would go out and spend as little money as possible on the cheapest vinyl pants I could find in some bike shop’s bargain bin.
They would then live in the bottom of my bag and if it was really raining and I could be bothered stopping, I’d put them on.
At the end of the year, they would be in tatters and I’d throw them into a bin and move on to the next pair.
The cheap shit never really worked, never really lasted and I always looked like a homeless metho-fiend when I had them on.
I owned a wet-weather top once, but that fell off my bike on the way home from Phillip Island one year, cars ran over it, and I never bothered replacing it. I chose instead to rely on top-end textile jackets to keep the rain out. And for the most part, it worked.
So, once again, for the most part, my rain-gear strategy worked.
Recently, while I was in Europe, the Held factory very generously provided me with its Rainblock top and bottom, and for the very first time in my life I experienced what top-notch wet-weather gear is all about.
